Why?

Why do people spread hate? Why do people fight?

Why do leaders add fuel to the fire of racism? Why do they say hurtful things impulsively?

Why does the government remain silent when other races are being persecuted? Why are we being targeted?

Why do they feel threatened? Why do they ask us to leave?

Why do they say we are ungrateful? Why can’t they realize that we just want justice?

Why do they act without proper consideration? Why do they allow racist bigots to lead this country?

Why do they claim to be pro-unity and equality? Why do they act otherwise?

Why do they threaten to take away our scholarships? Why do they strip us of our basic human rights?

Why do they suppress our freedom of speech? Why do they defy the constitution when they were the ones who wrote it?

Why can’t we just live harmoniously?

I remember being enthralled with the written word ever since my parents started reading fairytales to me at a young age. Seeing the power it has to influence behaviours and mindsets, I have learned, over the years, to translate my thoughts onto paper, in an attempt to positively disrupt the lives of others. Having my written works published in various forms of media has empowered me to weave stories that people can resonate with. I look forward to the life-long process of perfecting this craft, and hope to see my work touch the hearts of many in the future. This blog attempts to do just that - and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy penning it down.
